University of Houston Downtown Computer and Mathematical Sciences


With advanced technology, information and all types of data are being processed at extremely high speed. Work on grand challenge problems such as problems in genetic engineering, bioengineering, natural phenomena, hurricanes, oil spills, biotechnology, and ground water pollution is rapidly increasing. Computer visualization and image processing are becoming essential in medical areas. High performance computing is advancing research in many disciplines, and distributed networking systems are being implemented to enhance communication. These are only a few examples of new challenges in the workplace. More than at any time, the work place is in need of people with strong analytical and computational skills.
